Hastings’ premier fight show is set to return on Saturday.

Tiger Hart Promotions’ Pantheon 5 – Requiem will take place at Sussex Coast College Hastings. Sanctioned by the IKF, the show will feature some of the UK’s leading amateur fighters and one fantastic professional fight.

The home club, the Fighting Tigers Gym, will have no fewer than six of its stable on the card and there will be two title fights.

One will feature the Fighting Tigers’ Jimmy Killick against Nathan Emery, of Unique Gym in Gillingham, in a Southern Area Light Heavyweight title bout and the second will pit Emery’s team-mate, the exciting Ambrose Salami, against multiple champion Sean Daly, from Platinum Kickboxing in Coventry, for the Light Middleweight British title.

The other main event is a real treat for fight fans as it will see pro K1 action between two men really making a name for themselves in the fight game, Ed Kelly, from Gym South London, and Sam Nicholls, from the world famous Storm Gym in Luton.

Also on the card will be Mike Burman, who will be hungry for more in his third K1 bout after getting Fighter of the Night last time out, while Sam Squires and Guy Sampson will both be making their K1 debuts. Ben Mitchell will also be in K1 action and Glenn Hitchman has a white collar boxing bout, all representing Fighting Tigers.

Eighteen bouts are on the card in total, although that figure is subject to change. Tickets will be available on the door or by calling Tiger Hart Promotions’ ticket hotline on 07599 803377. Doors will open at 5pm and the show will start at 6pm.
